It was Jagged Little Pill that got me hooked . Alanis Morrisette has and always will be a woman after my own heart. I remember the first time I played that record from start to finish, I felt instantly at ease, like some other chick knew exactly how weird I felt about life. Ironic, You Learn, One Hand in My Pocket...I still listen to them on repeat. Bottom line, I love love love that hippy Canadian.
Her more recent albums I haven't obsessed over as much as Jagged, but there are a few singles I still dig. Thank You makes me instantly emo, along with Uninvited. If you aren't familiar with 21 Things I Want In a Lover, it's basically self-explanatory. She details her ideal significant other. From having a big intellectual capacity to being uninhibited in bed, the list has always made me think. I have been telling myself for a while to copy her and write my own and I'm feeling like tonight is going to be the night. Except I like to break the rules, so I'm doing 25. Well 26. One for good luck.
